Abstract

Prefabricated vertical drain (PVD) is one of the new technologies for soil improvement. Because of the high cost of land procurement, land reclamation has become a very promising alternative for expanding and constructing new ports. The presence of soft clay poses a major challenge for port development as it requires ground improvement. The use of prefabricated vertical drain (PVD) with preloading has become a popular method of ground improvement because of ease and speed of installation. The PVD had installed in the soft clay and there will have hot water in the PVD. And the hot water needs to increase in 90 "C to 100°C. When use the PVD in the huge area or land need I more energy to run the system. In this case need a lot of energy. By using the electrical energy it can't give good performance for the big system and it costly. There use other alternative, solar energy. The solar energy are save and friendly. When the soil has improved the land will get start to construction.
